Tom Arthurs / Simon Vincent – Three Improvisations
NOT015 – Download – Release date 12th November 2010
Despite being friends and collaborators for more than 10 years, this is the first recording from the duo of trumpeter Tom Arthurs and electronic musician Simon Vincent.
Entirely improvised and focussing on extreme subtleties of sound and interaction, these three pieces are a document of a complete session that took place in July 2009.
In a subtle comment on the supposed eternity of the digital format, in 2015 Arthurs and Vincent chose to commemorate the release of their second (and, in their eyes, far better) recording by removing the free download of their first album. The second album will be released by Vision of Sound.
